by Lauren Humphrey

As winter unfolds its icy embrace and the first snowflakes dance gracefully from the sky, our quaint towns and villages are gearing up for a season of joy, community, and holiday cheer. In the heart of Genesee County, we invite you to be a part of the enchanting tradition of 'decking the halls' by immersing yourself in the spirited celebrations of our small-town holiday festivals. Get ready to experience the warmth of community, the glow of festive lights, and the joy of coming together with loved ones.

The holiday magic kicks off on December 1st with Oakfield’s Christmas in the Village. Witness the spectacle of the Fire Truck Parade featuring Santa himself, as the winter wonderland lighting in Memorial Park transforms the village into a twinkling spectacle. Don't miss the chance to visit with Santa, and indulge in goodies and refreshments that will surely leave you in high spirits.

Meanwhile, in the charming Village of Corfu, all are welcome to join the festive parade and witness the magical Christmas Tree lighting, a moment that truly captures the essence of the season.

December 2: A Festive Extravaganza in Oakfield, Batavia, and Le Roy

On December 2nd, Oakfield’s Christmas in the Village continues with more delights. Bring your family and friends to Main Street Oakfield for a jolly celebration featuring Christmas trees, shopping, dining, and a chance to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Meanwhile, Downtown Batavia comes alive with Christmas in the City, featuring a Downtown Parade and events scattered throughout the area and local businesses. It's a day filled with holiday cheer and festivities.

Additionally, Le Roy’s Annual Winterfest promises a day of family fun, supporting local businesses, and community camaraderie. Enjoy carols, free activities, and the grand finale of a tree lighting to wrap up the day in small-town style.

Join the quaint village of Elba on December 8th at 7 pm for a magical evening at Christmas in the Park. Marvel at over 40 beautifully decorated Christmas trees, join in the joyous caroling, savor cookies and hot chocolate, and don't miss the highlight of the evening – a visit from Santa himself!
